Steampunk googles - Published in TPC

Steampunk has always facinated me for some reason. Gears and victorian inspiration are some of the key words to steampunk. Airships, googles and a very specific way of dressing up. These steampunk googles has been made from some old welding goggles and was published in the magazine TPC a year ago. 

I have used a leather texture paper from Kaisercraft - Cherry Tree Lane - Leather with wooden and metal gears from Finnabair, black and cobber spray paint and wax and paint from Finnabair. 

The google itself, are old welding goggles. They were dismanteled before they were altered. Paint will generally not fix to plastic. Therefore I sanded the down a bit and added serviets as decopage first. After that I painted the googles.

 The glass has been covered with washi tape, before I spry painted the googles. 

I used the paper from the Cherry Tree Lane from Kaisercraft to get the leather pattern at the back of the googles. 

Then I added gears, and dry painted with Finnabair's cobber metalic paint and wax.

Happy crafting.

Prima flowers - a layout published in The magazine TPC

Last winter, Hobby Lobby had a challenge to create selfies with flowery backgrounds int the shop. I thought of creating similar backgrounds, but never found the right one in a shop. Then I found a small field with daisies outside the university in i East Anglia in England, a fantastic spot for a selfie. The "typical" Prima layout is often created with lots of flowers in layers, with die cuts and with pretty Prima papers in the backround, coloured and created textures on with paint and pastes.

This layout was published in the magazine TPC, last year.

The papers are form Prima's Santorini collection - Together at Santorini Florals. Dies are Prima's  Metal Dies - Forest Leaves and lace dies. Fishnet dies is a Kaisercraft dies. I have aldo used old wooden figures and wheels, Paradise sign, and tiles from my old pile of Primas bits and bobs. Flowers are from Prima. 

The layout has been bouilt up in layers with 3D tape in between to create dimension. 

The diecuts and cut out tickets from Prima paper has been layerd. In between the flowers, I have added car polish yearn. This is a super trick to create more volume in the flowers in the project. 

In the end, I sprayed some white gesso for effect. I used a toothbrush to spray the gesso. This gives you some control over the fine spray. 

In between, I have also added a bit of bling.

Gift boxes with Reprints Lilac Paris collection and Huldra stamps

Last time I visited Hobbykunst, I found the Roses paper from Reprint's Lilac Paris collection, anI have created three boxes out of one sheet of paper, and both sides of the paper has been used. 

The template and tutorial, is a template I got published in the magazine Ett trykk a while ago. You  can also find the template in my blog, It's the same box, just a bit smaller. 

I used stamps from Huldra designstudo - Huldra venner 1. These stamps has been cut out with circles from LDRS Fancy circles dies set. Around the circle, I have cut a circle with a patterned pair of scissors in lilac cardboard - a bit larger than the diecut.

The three boxes

All the three boxes has been decorated similar but different. I used different stamps, panels, swirls and left over flowers. The leaves and swirls has been made with Heartfelt: Classic Rose Creations Cut & Emboss Dies

Wishing you a creative autumn,

A pink rocket - gift box with template

This little gift box rocket has been made for the shop Hobbykunst. I created a girly version of the rocket.

The rocket has been made with papers from Maja design's Denim and girls collection.

The flowers has been made with Heartfelt's Classic rose stamp, dies and 3D mould set. This is a set I have used so much, that I have already saved in the price og the set compared to baying the flowers. In the midle of the flowers, I have used miniature glass beads in gold from Rayher. 

The rose has been creaed from old papers from Prima. 

The box has room for a little gift or space for some sweets. 

Template for the rocket:

I hope to see lots of more rockets around.

Mini, minihus med Prima sin Christmas in the Country serie

Jeg har nå helt forelsket med i Prima sin Christmas in the Country serie

Det å bygge 3D har vært litt av min greie i mange år. Denne lille kirken er laget etter en liten utfordring fra Hobbykunst om å lage noe i 3D inne i en av Tim Holtz sine mini Idea-Ology Decorative Glass klokker, som er 4cm høye. 

Denne kuppelen er satt inn i en minikakeklokke på 4x6 cm.

Kirken har jeg designet selv. Granbar, sløyfe og blomster er klippet ut av mønsterarket. Rundt taket på kirken har jeg brukt Snowpen og Glimmer ice pen fra Rayher. Disse er fantastiske til å spre litt snø i detaljerte områder.

Det lille barnet på kjelken er fra et supersøtt sett med minifigurer. De er 1,5 til 2cm høye og passer supersøtt inn i små prosjekter som dette.

Her er det også brukt små gullperler. Disse er helt nye og kommer i et sett med 3 esker med perler i ulike størrelser i gull eller sølv. 

Kirken er på grensen til hva det er mulig å bygge i miniformat av Prima sine ark, siden disse arkene er ganske tykke. Kirken er ca 3m høy til spiret.

For å bygge kirken, har jeg brukt lim som er satt over på en flaske med ultrafin tupp. Lignende flaske med ultrafin tupp kan du finne i butikken hos Hobbykunst.
